After photographing more than 100 weddings over the past few years, I've really come to value the unexpected, unscripted, in between moments.
The thoughtful words exchanged mere seconds before you walk down the aisle. The subtle tear tracing your partner's cheek. The way you lean into one another during the toasts. The laughs shared when greeting friends you remember all to well but haven't seen in far too long.
Your wedding day is a joyous celebration of a new beginning. It is the joining of two families. It is a day full of beautiful details, heartfelt moments, timeless portraits and hundreds of unique, unplanned candid exchanges. It's an honor to play a part and to serve you on such a significant day.
"Take care of all of your memories, for you can not relive them." – Bob Dylan
Everyone, I mean everyone, who has seen our wedding photos has commented on how beautiful they are!
Not only are they visually stunning, but something about the quality of her work feels so warm and natural, yet well-defined and professional. The colors are beautiful and I love how she captured moments I didn't even realize she was capturing!
